(Snicker) Bwahahaha!! (Snicker)

Lawd Governor Blanco guess who is back in the news again??? Our main man "Brownay" (not a typo)....People really should watch what they say in their e-mail.....Looks like "Brownie" was more concerned with his hair follicles than he was about Katrina victims being the "fashion god" that he is....Nice to see the Feds have their priorties in order!!!! I think he does use mousse...His hair always looks like it is weighed down with something...I bet with all that mousse on his skull his hair follicules could withstand a tropical storm with max sustained winds of 350 MPH.....LOL.....(snicker) You can quit now "Brownie"....You can "come home"....Find another fool "Brownie" me and the Governor ain't having it!!!!!

E-mails: Brown discounted levee breach after Katrina hit

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hours after Hurricane Katrina hit, former FEMA director Michael Brown dismissed reports that floodwaters had breached New Orleans' levees, and he obsessed over media coverage of his agency, according to newly released e-mails.

The 928 pages of documents, obtained by the Center for Public Integrity watchdog group and released Tuesday, paint a picture of a Federal Emergency Management Agency keenly sensitive to public image following the Aug. 29, 2005, storm.

They also highlighted anew the confusion about the levees' status in the critical hours after the storm. Critics have questioned whether discovering breaches earlier could have speeded repair efforts, lessened flooding and saved lives.

At one point early that morning, Brown reported to an aide that he was "sitting in the chair, putting mousse in my hair" while waiting for media interviews to begin.

In an e-mail Wednesday to The Associated Press, Brown said he does not use mousse and described the exchange as an inside joke among FEMA staffers. "I don't use mousse," he wrote. "Never have, never will. Anyone who knows me can attest to that. So, it was clearly a joke."

A few hours later, at 9:50 a.m., a FEMA staffer at the National Hurricane Center sent department brass an alert from a local TV station report that "a levee breach occurred along the industrial canal" near the city's low-income Ninth Ward.

But at 12:09 p.m., Brown dismissed the report and suggested that the situation wasn't so bad. "I'm being told here water over not a breach," he said, referring to floodwaters which had overrun — but not broken — the levees.

The aide, Michael Lowder, replied: "Ok. You probably have better info there. Just wanted to pass you what we hear."

Brown has been hired by OnScreen Technologies Inc. of Portland, a maker of compact displays for emergency first responders, to generate sales to government agencies.

Since quitting FEMA on Sept. 12, Brown has sharply criticized the Bush administration for failing to respond quickly to reports about levee breaches. He has said previously he was convinced of a levee breach by 1 p.m. the day Katrina roared ashore.

2 Comments:

  • During the last several months many national broadcast reporters and journalists have publicly apologized to Michael Brown for blaming him for the failures that occurred during the aftermath of Katrina.

    Since announcing our relationship with Michael Brown at the National Hurricane Conference in mid April; OnScreen’s stock has increased by 30 percent. Shareholders and investors believe it was a positive strategy for OnScreen, a small start-up, to receive the endorsement of a public figure, who understands the need for critical preparedness. His decision to join OnScreen Technologies and promote and build awareness for RediAlert was a smart business decision.
